8/31/15  FREE to a good home: older Blue Jay (late 1950's?) in rough condition on trailer. Sail number 1147, with the name Tony Church in magic marker on the sail bag. This boat has not been used in many years and was stored outside where, unfortunately, the cover leaked and the boat filled with water, rotting some of the plywood. Wooden spars and sails are in good condition since they were stored inside. I would love for this boat to go to a non-profit or summer camp that might use it in a sailing instruction program but it does need a lot of work which would take a handy person. If you have another older Blue Jay, perhaps the spare parts would be useful, even if the boat is too far gone to bother with. I am in eastern Massachusetts. david@lsenergyllc.com

3/27/13 FOR SALE : Fully restored 1986, one off wooden Blue Jay. She was kit built and then spent many years rotting in a barn until I found her. She's since been totally redone, not a square inch missed. Completely epoxy coated, new centerboard, CB trunk, transom, top decking, sails, rigging, rudder, etc. She took 6 weeks to restore, and is nearly complete with just a new tiller and some rope work left to complete in the next few weeks. I have the original registration, all you have to do is add bow numbers and give her a name. She doesn't come with a trailer, so you can pick her up, or I can deliver in the New England area ( when the snow melts. ) There are many, many, more pictures available from her restoration, and I'm more than happy to answer any questions. Bear in mind, she’s a 1 off, so would need to be re-classed for racing. Asking $4900 or B.O. Feel free to call Greg at 603-724-1312 or e mail northstarboats@aol.com
